Senior Flyers Program

Scam alert information in flyer format

What are the Senior Flyers?

With the collaboration of Wyoming AARPWyCOA, the Wyoming Department of Aging, and the FTC, the CyberWyoming Alliance provides scam alert information in flyer format to be sent with senior meal deliveries.

Statistics show that seniors are more at risk for internet fraud. The FBI’s Internet Crimes Complaint Center compiles reported losses from internet related scams.

If your Wyoming senior center provides meals and wants to participate in the Senior Alert flyer program, contact us at info@cyberwyoming.org to get a fact sheet. The Wyoming Department of Aging has stated that Title IIIB funds can be used to pay for printing costs associated with providing flyers to your senior clients.

AARP ANNOUNCES REST PROGRAM

The AARP Fraud Watch Network and Volunteers of America (VOA) created a new, free program to provide emotional support for people impacted by a scam or fraud.

ReST, which stands for resilience, strength and time, features small groups whose members are led in discussion by one or more trained peer facilitators. These online, hour-long sessions help you to re-establish trust, integrate your experience and build back your resilience despite a difficult and painful occurrence. Discussions are confidential and you are welcome to attend one session or several – it’s your choice.

Experiencing a scam can be devastating, but it doesn’t have to define you. Sign up for a session and take an important step toward emotional recovery. Visit www.aarp.org/fraudsupport to learn more about the free program and register today. Remember, you are not alone.
